Ubisoft believes Odyssey will be big in Japan
As Assassin’s Creed Odyssey arrives next week on October 5th, Ubisoft feels confident that the game will do well with Japanese players. For example, this entry in the series has been trying to push its limits with having characters with same-sex relationships as well as RPG elements.
To follow up, Ubisoft’s Asia General Manager Steve Miller elaborates on this:
“Assassin’s Creed has a core following in Japan, and it is one of the most successful Western series in Japan. There are many fans who like the historical settings, the fashion, detail in the buildings, and also they appreciate the full localization that goes into the Japanese version. And this time we have a playable heroine as well as a playable hero, so I think Odyssey will appeal to the core fan base.
At the same time, Odyssey is more RPG-like than any previous Assassin’s Creed, so we think the appeal of this game will reach beyond the core fans and will be very interesting for RPG fans, which we know there are many of in Japan. Together with the ever-increasing installed base of the various consoles, we think Odyssey has a good chance of being the most successful Assassin’s Creed title ever in Japan.”
All and all, its great to see a long-running franchise such as Assassin’s Creed strive in such a way. First off for reasons mentioned above shows maturity and growth to adapt, blend, and stand out as a fresh game. Comment below if you’re going to pre-order Assassin’s Creed Odyssey.
